Summary:
The Lewisham Adolescent Resources and Therapy Service (ARTS)is part of Lewisham Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS). We provide assessment, treatment and care for young people, up to the age of 18, who are already in the criminal justice system. The service is available to children and young people who have a Lewisham GP.

Forensic community teams provide mental health treatment and care for people who have a history of offending and who may pose a risk to the public.

We care for young people who live in the London Borough of Lewisham and are known to a Youth Offending Service (YOS). We also work with children and young people who exhibit sexually inappropriate behaviour.

We provide one to one and group treatment and care, and work with the police, the public protection unit, social services and our local Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangement (MAPPA) team to support people in the community.

Our team
Our team is made up of a number of people from different backgrounds. This may include child and adolescent psychiatrists, social workers, clinical psychologists, community psychiatric nurses, child psychotherapists, occupational therapists, as well as art, music and drama therapists.
